By combining Avenu’s Short-Term Rental (STR) solution with TrueRoll’s Homestead Exemption services, the partnership aims to help municipalities save time, increase efficiency, and recover lost tax revenue.

The Avenu and TrueRoll partnership offers a holistic solution to proactively address compliance issues, prevent revenue losses, and ensure the efficient administration of homestead exemptions.
